The fundamentalist burns with anti-intellectual zeal, and in reaction sophists are often swollen up with intellectualism. The fundamentalist and the sophist justify their excesses by the sin of their opposite. Fundamentalism and sophistry give piety and philosophy bad reputations with society. - John Mark Reynolds
Before publishers' blurbs were invented, authors had to make their reputations by writing. - Laurence J. Peter
Reputations are created every day and every minute.
A man is what he is, not what men say he is. His character no man can touch. His character is what he is before his God and his Judge; and only he himself can damage that. His reputations what men say he is. That can be damaged; but reputation is for time, character is for eternity
Sometimes reputations outlive their applications. Sometimes fires don't go out when you're done playing with them.
Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve their reputations and social standing, never can bring about a reform. - Susan B. Anthony
It takes many years to build good reputations, but it takes a few minutes for their destruction. - Debasish Mridha
We are also not what others think of us. Our reputations do not define our true worth. Every person we know has an opinion of us. We drive ourselves crazy wondering what those opinion are and trying to change the ones that aren’t favorable. - Toni Sorenson
